Michael Jackson is being urged to donate his share of the profits from the Live 8 concerts to charity.
Paul McCartney played Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Get Back, Drive My Car, Helter Skelter, The Long And Winding Road and Hey Jude at the London portion of Live 8.
Since Jackson owns the rights to all Beatles songs, he would have earned money on McCartney's performance, and the subsequent sales of Beatles songs.
This may be a hard call for Jackson, as the profits would go quite some way to clearing his debts.
At the end of the day he will make a calculation; take the profits now, or give them away in the expectation that the giveaway will earn him larger future profits by rebuilding his brand.
